Japan is home to thousands of temples, but the oldest one of them all is the Sensoji Temple in Tokyo. By most accounts, the temple’s history dates back to the year 645 which makes it over 1,400 years old. During the Second World War, much of the temple was destroyed, but it was rebuilt afterwards in the original style. This makes Sensoji Temple a reminder of the resiliency of the Japanese people and an example of new beginnings. The entrance to the temple is the enormous Thunder Gate with hanging lamps, and it is the base of an annual festival held there each spring. When you visit Sensoji Temple, don’t forget to spend some time at Nakamise-dōri, the street leading to the temple where you can buy souvenirs, snacks or even have your fortune told.
